From Domestic to Divine: Andean Ceramics from the Permanent Collection

The ancient Andean civilizations of South America were strikingly diverse in their religious beliefs and material cultures, but each developed complex ceramics for both domestic and ritual use. This exhibition features key pieces from the Museum’s collection, including several recent acquisitions from the Nazca, Paracas, Moche, Chimú, and Chavin cultures.

Renegades & Reformers: American Art Pottery

Since acquiring its first works by Adelaide Alsop Robineau in 1916, the Everson Museum of Art has built one of the finest collections of art pottery in the world. Renegades and Reformers revolves around two common personality types among potters: the “renegades” who embarked on highly personal artistic quests that pushed clay and glaze to their limits, and the “reformers,” whose modern designs and social attitudes pushed back against Victorian mores.

A Legacy of Firsts: The Everson Collects

In 1911, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts (known today as the Everson) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would focus on collecting works made by American artists. This decision, implemented by Museum Director Fernando Carter, was the first of many made by directors that ultimately defined the Everson’s collection as it exists today. This exhibition examines over one hundred years of the Museum’s collecting priorities, from the Museum’s earliest acquisitions in 1911 to work acquired in 2019.

Syracuse & the Erie Canal: 200 Years

The first packet boat to travel to Syracuse on the Erie Canal arrived in the then-hamlet 200 years ago this year. Regular transportation on the canal began three days later, ushering in a mode of travel that helped Syracuse grow from a tiny crossroads to one of New York's largest cities. Syracuse & the Erie Canal: 200 Years commemorates the Erie Canal's history in the community, and its profound impact on all aspects of the city through information panels, images, and historic artifacts from the Museum's collection.
